The music in the park . .

It is 7.35 am on Thursday and the legion of walkers at Nageswara Rao Park in Luz is still small - the nip of the margazhi season seems to have been brewed by the early sun.

The first event of the Fest is 30mins old and the young singers are treating the audience of about 50 people to Thyagaraja's pancha-ratna kritis - keeping in tune with the aradhana in Thiruvaiyaru!

This is one of the events which has trailed a nice trend and history - since the first set of mike-less concerts were introduced as part of the Fest, sponsor Sundaram Finance has taken it as their own to host such concerts on the first Sunday of every month.

PR person Prabhu says close to 300 concerts have been hosted at the Chess Square. And some artistes who were here have gone on to get on to bigger stages.

Music in a park - always welcome.
